Can Massage Help With Chronic Pain and Stress?

Chronic stress can lead to pain, and chronic pain can lead to stress. They feed off of each other!  Chronic stress also leads to or exacerbates all kinds of medical conditions. Sickness, pain, and stress….”Ain’t nobody got time for that!”

Massage therapy is an excellent way to help manage stress. It’s also an effective method of pain relief, for many conditions. Neuromuscular pain manifests itself in many ways, and stress seems to find a home in whatever part of our bodies are already most vulnerable…our “tension spots.” Like many people who spend hours at the computer, I have chronic neck and shoulder pain,

Massage therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment plan for fibromyalgia, for several reasons. In addition to assisting in the relief from chronic pain, massage has also been shown to improve sleep. Poor sleep is often an issue for fibromyalgia sufferers.

When you visit us for massage, we want to know how your condition is interfering with your life. If muscle pain, or a lack of range of motion is preventing  you from doing something you want to do, let us know that. Massage can help restore range of motion in many cases.

We don’t promise that you’re going to be “cured” or “fixed” from whatever is ailing you–and especially not in one session. But we can point to the fact that over 90% of our clients are word of mouth referrals from other clients we have been able to help. I urge you to make massage therapy a regular part of your wellness plan. You’ll feel better for it.

We also offer package deals to make your therapy more affordable.  If you suffer from chronic stress and/or chronic pain, consider calling us  so we can answer any questions you have.
